1. Kidnapping is a serious offence, and if they have been arrested on the spot, and your statement u/s 164 before the Magistrate has been recorded - the case is on strong stead. If the charge of conspiracy is there - not only people who actually did it would be liable but also those who conspired and planned this offence.
2. Kidnapping, though a serious offence - on the basis of a compromise case can be quashed against them, but only if you voluntarily decide to do so, nobody can force you to compromise. In case you are pressurised file a police complaint, trying to threaten a witness/victim from prosecuting a matter is an offence under sections 506 and 195A of the IPC.
3. Hiring a counsel is only optional, the state would represent you through the Public Prosecutor, however you can have your counsel to assist him in the matter, if you really have been wronged and want these offendors to be brought to the book.
Good Luck !
